The Fellowship in Geriatric Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital is a one-year ACGME approved Fellowship focusing on the care of patients ages 65 and older across the continuum of health care settings. Fellows learn the principles of geriatric medicine by providing care and counsel to patients and families in ambulatory, acute, sub- acute and home settings. They will also learn Palliative Care during their inpatient Palliative Care rotation. Fellows will become skillful at collaborative care by working in an interdisciplinary team of nurse practitioners, geriatric psychiatrists, geriatric social workers, and geriatric case managers. In addition Fellows will engage in learning activities through Core Didactic Conferences, Case Conferences, Journal Club and Research Conferences and develop teaching and leadership skills through one-on-one mentorship, consulting resources and teaching patients, families, medical residents and students.
